Job DescriptionIf you dream of exploring the borderlands between data science and molecular biology, you've come to the right place! At LabGenius, were building a platform to discover revolutionary medicines using machine learning. We have exciting growth plans for this year and are looking for a biologist-turned-Data Scientist to join us on our mission. What you'll do. As part of our Data Science team, you'll work to build, train, and QC machine learning models based on NGS data from ultra high throughput display selections, enabling us to design novel proteins. You'll analyse, mine, and interpret protein sequence space datasets to make our algorithms smarter. You'll interact with Pharma partner scientists to deliver machine learning models based on their data sets: helping them discover better drugs, faster. Requirements What were looking for from you. Essential * You have a MSc or PhD in molecular biology , biochemistry, computational biology, or a similar field. * Youve independently run a project where you applied statistics and machine learning to raw data, either in an industrial or academic setting. * You have the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with specialists from your own and other fields (e.g. protein scientists and data scientists). * Youre used to giving clear, actionable feedback and troubleshooting when there are issues with the data. * Youre adept at creating reports and visualisations to communicate your findings to a range of target audiences. Nice-to-have * You may have successfully used NGS datasets to predict improved variants from directed evolution experiments. * You may have collaborated with wet-lab scientists to plan and execute multiple experiments. * You may have had your work published (if working in academia). * You may have worked in a biotech startup or in the pharmaceutical industry. How you enjoy working. * Youll be a quick learner, enjoy both discussing ideas AND putting them into action. * A true multi-disciplinarian, youre equally happy digging into the details of a molecular biology protocol as you are training machine learning models. * Youre an excellent communicator and translator between biologists and data scientists. * Youre an inclusive team player who enjoys collaborating with people from different backgrounds. * You care about working on something that will be a positive, transformative force for humanity. Benefits What youll receive from us. Aside from being part of our brilliant, purpose-driven team, you'll also enjoy: * Self-service learning budget via Sunlight plus access to loads of books, courses, and events; we encourage personal development in any form. Basically, we heart curiosity. * Flexible working arrangements: whether youre a night owl or a morning lark, with core hours of 10am-4pm, you can choose a pattern that works for you. * Easy access to on-site gym and climbing wall to break a sweat or indulge your inner monkey. * Monthly 1-on-1 coaching from Sanctus: because we need to look after our minds as well as our bodies. * Weekly team lunches from City Pantry: the perfect time to connect over kebabs, natter over nachos, or cackle over curry. * Access to the Cycle To Work scheme: to make your commute cheaper, healthier, and a whole lot greener! We believe that diversity makes for innovative, exceptional teams. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate based on gender, race, colour, religion or belief, national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other protected class.
